If you're suffering, you're either living life wrong or you're a heterosexual white male on a Canadian college campus.

Is this a joke?

I can't believe that video is what brought you to this realization. Even if we are here to suffer, do something to change it and if you can't then don't worry and do the best you can.

I personally say there is no reason why you exist. Life is just a coincidence and some extremely lucky odds. Unless your religious, but I prefer the theory of everything was coincidentally perfect for life, and I do mean EVERYTHING, down to the last dam minor detail.

Factor in the fact that any of your ancestors could of instead died before conceiving your next in line at any time in history, and we are all very lucky to be alive. Now what is the meaning of being alive? Who gives a fuck, just accept it and do with it as you will for the relatively short 60-90 years you got.

My main goal in life, and it's perfectly optional, with a high failure chance too, is to blow up Hawaii!!! I would destroy the world, but even I admit that's too lofty of an idea in the short time frame of 50 years. Bonus ducks to me if I can also carve the moon with a stupid message, and use said debris to rain down on Hawaii, build a castle in the middle of the Cascade mountains, without any dam land permits or legal fluff, and finally, build an army of tsudere lab assistant robots that also question life and existence, just to come to the conclusion that it was just the whim of a crazy old coot and they are only staying with me because there is nothing better to do in the middle of nowhere.

I may be off point but other cooments got more serious so a song thats ?? suffering Listen carefully

The Bad Relgion song ( Album=1998 ) " Suffer" sums the term up nicely as do many of their songs about things wrong in the world . Their older politocal songs are as revelant today as 30 years ago

Graffin attended El Camino Real High School, then double-majored in anthropology and geology as an undergraduate at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He went on to earn a master's degree in geology from UCLA and received his PhD from Cornell University. The PhD dissertation was officially a zoology PhD, supervised by William B. Provine at Cornell. The title of his dissertation is "Evolution, Monism, Atheism, and the Naturalist World-View: Perspectives from Evolutionary Biology".

Greg Graffin returned to UCLA where he taught Life Science 1 In a June 2008 interview with Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley, he mentioned that Graffin would be teaching there from January to March 2009. In April 2011, Graffin revealed that he would return to Cornell University that fall to co-teach a course in evolution for 14 weeks.

I agree with this. That our purpose is only to prepare us mentally for what comes next. This is only the start of a very long journey to what I don't know but it is definitely only the begging. I had my own near death experience and from my personal experiences that I saw and experienced that something defiantly happens when we die I can say that with 99% confidence and religion has nothing to do with it. I still believe from this that we are not a natural evolved spices and that there is something more than what we are being told about our creation.

I think the post really should be titled "This dumb world has some messed up shit in it" but I guess it wouldn't generate much discussion...

Everyone is stuck in life. Let's say someone seals me forever, and then in forever +1, I reborn into another being. It is an endless loop that we will prevail even when the universe ends, because eventually, the universe will be re-created, and we will live again
